Assigning Midi in Cubas and Kontakt 4 for Z-tar

I bought a Z-tar which is basically just a controller that looks like a
guitar. I'd like to assign zones like a split keyboard situation going
through Cubase 5 to Kontakt 4.
My first issue is that although I
have the manual for my Ztar, my manuals for Cubase 5 and Kontakt 4 are
in another city. I haven't assigned midi like this in a loooooong time.
After I set up my recording software the way I wanted it, I've never
When I change only the midi channel in my Ztar and
in Kontakt 4 both to channel 2, it won't play. It only works on channel
1. I'm sure I'm missing something important. Maybe there's a program/patch
change I have to do but I'm confused about change it to what and where
to change it. In Cubase 5 also? Where?
I'd like to be able to
have a bass guitar in one location. In another location I want to put
preprogrammed guitar chords from Kontakt 4 by using different samples
stacked on the same key. In a third location I want my Holdsworthian
lead guitar sound.
I'm currently able to make my guitar chords
play with just a tap of a single key on my Ztar with the key middle C,
for example, but when I try to block out middle C's that exist in other
locations on my instrument it doesn't work because I haven't assigned
I'll be playing the lead guitar sound with my
right hand but if I venture too close to the headstock I start to
unintentionally trigger chords which only belong in the left hand. (I'm
doing a 2 hands thing.) It's gonna be really cool when I get it going.
But I either have to get my manuals or some nice person here can explain
what I should do to make the midi assignments. Thanks
PS I already put this on Gearslutz.com but after 150 people viewed my request, I posted the second half but still no replies.
